Neil Patrick Harris hosted the Tony Awards last night, and he's an amazing, charismatic, funny, charming host, so you knew going in that it was going to be legen—wait for it—dary. But nothing could have prepared us for this unforgettable number.
The musical extravaganza featured the tiny tots of Matilda, the leaping newboys of Newsies, the old versions of all those kids in Billy Elliot, the cheerleaders of Bring It On—Neil was even lifted into a stunt!—Spiderman, and eventually… Mike Tyson? Hey, he had a show, too. It takes a lot for a classy bunch of theater veterans to give a standing ovation for over a minute, but Neil definitely earned it. Watch now!
What was your favorite part of the opening number? Were you impressed by Neil's tongue-tying lyrics? Which shows were you rooting for this year? Tell us in the comments below or tweet us @OKMagazine.
